Expert answers: what do you do if the conveyor belt gets out of alignment when passing through the pulleys?

Does your belt lose its alignment at a specific point when passing through the pulleys?

Check out the tip from our Mercurio Expert.

You first need to identify the point where the belt becomes misaligned. This normally happens when the splice passes through the pulleys due to the lack of alignment of the splice when it was made. Many splicers end up closing/aligning splices from the edges, which is not recommended due to the variations that can occur in belt width during manufacturing. Whether your belt is a textile one or of steel cords, the splice alignment should always occur through a center line. Does your team have any questions about splices in your operations, calculations, good practices, how to inspect your conveyor belts, or other services? One option is to talk with our team.
